I recently installed the trip computer to my EL GLi, it was a succesfuly install but now i can not use my rear demister, when i press the button for the demister, and the transmission is in POWER mode the Economy light turns on and when you let go off the button the light goes off - im unsure if its puttin it in eco mode or not but when the economy is on it does nothing

I have cut the blue red wire from the middle plug (rear wiper i think) wich i dont need so i dont think ot will affect it

No fuses that i can see are blown and a relay doesnt ''click'' when RD turned on

You have plugged the Auto Economy Plug into you demister. Change the plugs over. There is a dash plug for the column shift auto's in the wiring loom, it overides the console switch.
